Here you will find everything you need to plan your visit to the Lilu Light Festival Lucerne in advance, so that all you have to do at the end is let yourself be illuminated.
PRICES AND TICKETS
You can marvel at around 20 light installations around Lucerne’s lake basin and in the old town free of charge. You can buy tickets for the Lilu guided tours and the light shows in the ticket shop.
Arrival and departure
We recommend travelling to and from the event by public transport.
Sit back, enjoy and do something good for the environment. Railaway supports this during the eleven days of the festival with an increased offer of discount tickets from/to Lucerne. The Lilu tour can be started directly from the station.
Gastronomy & Hotels
The Lilu Light Festival Lucerne has put together various attractive accommodation packages in collaboration with Lucerne Hotels and Lucerne Tourism. Combine your Lilu visit with one or more overnight stays and extend your stay in the beautiful city of lights.
Discover the region during the day with the Tell-Pass
A magical play of light: whether during the day with the Tell Pass on the mountain or in the evening in the city
The Tell Pass is the ticket for Central Switzerland and the perfect complement to your stay at the Lilu. Enjoy the light and the warming rays of sunshine on the mountains of Central Switzerland above the fog during the day and be enchanted by the light spectacle of Lilu in the evening. With the Tell-Pass, you can experience the diversity of Central Switzerland with just one ticket and travel by train, bus, boat and numerous mountain railways to the various excursion destinations in the region. With the Stoos, Rigi, Titlis and Brienzer Rothorn mountain railways, four of the most spectacular cableways in Central Switzerland are also included in the winter Tell-Pass ticket.
Installations & artists
Most of the artists are from Switzerland, including Lucerne and the surrounding area. However, we are looking forward to welcoming artists from all over Europe again this year.
The light installations are located in central places in the middle of the city, at well-known sights and along the lake basin.
The Lilu Light Festival Lucerne takes place in all weathers. We ask visitors to dress appropriately for the weather. Warm clothing and shoes suitable for winter will help you brave the sometimes chilly temperatures in January.
There are plenty of public toilets in the city. In addition, some restaurants make their “nice toilets” available. Here is an overview.
The organiser accepts no liability in the event of theft.
